2009 Buick Enclave CXL 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Bought car in "clunker" trade-in deal. My wife fell in love with this car based on the interior and quiet ride. she was correct on both. however, after 4 months we see a couple of issues. first, gas mileage is 15-20 not 17-24 as advertised! No different than the "clunker" we had. took it back to dealer and of course found nothing wrong. had to put foam strips on underside of garage door because rear door lifts too high and bangs on bottom of garage door. ill designed. no clothes hook on second row seats. to hang clothes you have to use hook by 3rd row seats and it is difficult to get to. nice car overall, but I would look at others before investing this much money.

Best Features

ride, quiet, interior plushness, On- Star, XM radio

Worst Features

Redesign rear door to allow to work in normal garages. Add clothes hook by 2nr row seats. Improve gas mileage to at least what is advertised!!
